Presented by Prince George County Regional Heritage Center
President Lincoln said that the Beefsteak Raid was “the slickest piece of cattle rustling”. He was talking about the raid and capture of 2,500 head of cattle on September 16, 1864 at Coggins Point in Prince George County to feed starving troops. Come and enjoy an evening of great food (Disputants Ruritans will be grilling the steaks), good music, special exhibits, a chance to visit with some very special horses, and an auction. The unique auction items all relate to county history and includes: a commemorative engraved Henry rifle, a limited edition print of the Beefsteak Raid by Mort Kunstler and more. There will be free hot dog meals for children 12 & under. Tickets available at the Regional Heritage Center – drop by or order from the website. The funds raised will go the the Prince George Fire and EMS Museum, which will be located in the Historic Old Jail.
